12/15/13 - Next weekend ... Christmas Revels presents “The Spirits of Haddon Hall”
> VIEW   
> HIDE  
Come to Derbyshire, England, 1926: En route to a holiday party, John Manners, the 9th Duke of Rutland, visits Haddon Hall with his wife and children. Abandoned for over two centuries and now dilapidated, his ancestral home is scheduled for demolition. Stranded there overnight, the Duke and his family are unexpected witnesses to a “spirited” seasonal celebration, featuring the many generations of his ancestors who have inhabited this medieval manor house. These ghostly participants do their best to convince the Duke that Haddon Hall must be saved.
“The Spirits of Haddon Hall” is Santa Barbara Revels’ sixth annual production, filled with wonderful choral and instrumental music drawn from the 12th to the 20th centuries, with lively country dancing, familiar and fanciful stories and rituals of the season, and beloved Revels traditions. This imaginative interpretation of events from an actual time and place will entertain, enlighten, and entice audiences of all ages. As revelers like to say: “Join us and be joyous!”
